Georgia residents suffering from a disability or medical condition that prevents them from working may feel overwhelmed by their financial obligations. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration approves Social Security disability benefits for thousands of people each year. If you qualify, these benefits will be a source of income for you and your family.

While many people’s applications are approved, there are also many people who are denied SSD benefits for a variety of reasons. The application process can be complex and require you to provide a detailed medical history, statements from treating physicians, and employment information. Failure to provide any of this information in a timely fashion may result in a denial.

To give yourself the best chance at having your application for benefits approved, you can contact an experienced disability lawyer at Rogers Hofrichter & Karrh LLC Our attorneys can help you with all the paperwork required and make sure you accurately and thoroughly describe your medical condition in accordance with SSD guidelines.

If your application does get denied, our attorneys can help challenge the denial by filing an appeal. First, you can file a request for reconsideration to have your claim completely reviewed and if your request is denied, you may request a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. Disability applicants who hire attorneys to represent them at the hearing may have a better chance to have their applications approved. Facing these types of challenges can be stressful, but the proper guidance can be of great help.
